From 160 Ratings


Perfect for fans of ‘Me Before You’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, New York Times bestselling author Melody Grace brings together two people searching for a love that can overcome tragedy. A heartbreakingly romantic novel that challenges us to live – and love - every day as if it were our last. 

“Promise me one thing. Promise me you’ll live.”

Claire Fortune arrives in Boston with an old notebook and her best friend’s dying wish – to finish the scribbled bucket list that Hope didn’t have time to complete. Moment by moment, Claire builds a life she never dreamed of – until Theo walks into the coffee-shop one crisp September afternoon, and her careful plans scatter on the winds.

Sometimes a chance meeting can change a life forever.
Sometimes fate knows exactly what we need.

Praise for THE PROMISE:

"Not enough stars. Not enough words... One of the best books I've read so far. It'll surely stay with me forever. The writing is so beautiful, I don't know how to move on now. My heart physically ached and I went through every single emotion known to mankind. Everyone should read this book." - Layla's Reads Book Blog.

"The Promise took me prisoner from page one, immersing me, as I was intoxicated by the beauty and brilliance of words that rivaled those in a Nicholas Sparks novel... Melody Grace poured her heart, blood, sweat, and tears into her most brilliant and best book yet, a perfectly poignant romance that remains for a lifetime like that epic love. The Promise is taking that leap and living life to the fullest. The Promise is love against the odds. The Promise is happiness, hope, and heartbreak in a book bathed in beautiful words. The Promise is EVERYTHING." - Bookalicious Babes Blog

"Whoa what a story. This story is unlike anything you've ever read from Melody before. It's gut wrenching and grabs ahold of you and doesn't let go until you are sobbing and trying to read through the tears." - Misti, Goodreads reviewer. 

"Beautiful. Gut wrenching. Heartbreaking. An epic love story that will live on long after you finish this book." - Goodreads reviewer

    This was so heart breaking, but I loved it all. Kept my Kleenex box near me. She proved to be very brave to endure all her pain. To know this does happen. Keep writing. Pudge48

    This was an author new to me. Don’t know if I could get through another book like this. So well written, so heartbreakingly beautiful. But I prefer ones that are happily ever after, even though that’s a fairytale for the most part. This book will be unforgettable to most anyone who reads it.
  • Good Read!

    This story draws you in and hold you to the very end. One of the best reads I've had this year. I'm not going to go into the plot, just going to say that it's worth allotting the time it takes to read it ... it's not your standard love story. I know I'll be reading it again while I'm chilling on vacation this fall.

    Very well written. Characters fully developed. I didn't anticipate the plot and the change of direction. When it manifested, it completely changed my preconceived opinion of this being a stereotypical love story. Stereotypical this book is not. However, it is a real tearjerker. If you want a good read, and have a box of Kleenex handy, I highly recommend this book.
  • Overwhelmingly Wonderful

    By Jesskuhann
    Without giving too much away, this story truly touches your heart. Claire's journey is so breathtakingly raw, beautiful, enchanting, and mesmerizing, that you will feel like you are right there in Boston with her. Nowadays, I find it rare to come upon novels that encompass everything a remarkable novel should have. However, this novel has everything you could ever hope for. And so much more! Believe me. Once you start, you won't be able to stop until it is done. Just be prepared for the emotional, life-changing, thrilling and down right beautiful story that is so wonderfully told in "The Promise."
